Exploring Session Variability and Template Aging in Speaker Verification for Fixed Phrase Short Utterances

Rohan Kumar Das, Sarfaraz Jelil, S.R. Mahadeva Prasanna


This work highlights the impact of session variability and template aging on speaker verification (SV) using fixed phrase short utterances from the RedDots database. These have been collected over a period of one year and contain a large number of sessions per speaker. Session variation has been found to have a direct influence on SV performance and its significance is even greater for the case of fixed phrase short utterances as a very small amount of speech data is involved for speaker modeling as well as testing. Similarly for a practical deployable SV system when there is large session variation involved over a period of time, the template aging of the speakers may effect the SV performance. This work attempts to address some issues related to session variability and template aging of speakers which are found for data having large session variability, that if considered can be utilized for improving the performance of an SV system.
